I ♥ My Bike

Dan got me a bike for Christmas.  It was just the bike I wanted only he didnt buy it new from stores (he's a thrifty dude).  He found it for free on Craigslist and it was totally used and abused. So, really what he got me for Christmas was a project.  I'll admit, I had a lot of fun getting it working.  First, we took it apart and I sprayed the frame yellow.  Then, I got a baby and I left it in my neighbor's garage for a few months.  (Sorry, Andy!  It wasn't bike-riding-weather anyway).  

Some friends put it back together a few weeks ago but we didnt have all the right tools to get it just right.  That's when our friend Dan told us about 2nd Cycle, a non-profit that helps fix their bikes.  They sell used bikes and recycled bike parts.  Since I didn't take any of their parts I didnt have to pay but I made a donation for all the time they spent with me.  Now this beauty runs like a champ!  I bought a baby trailer to hook up to the back so we can go on rides as a whole family.  I'm going to use it to pick up BB from daycare today.  It's finally bike weather now and I'm so excited to ride!
